Coffee Stain Studios have announced that Goat Simulator, the “world’s dumbest game”, will be launching on April 1. Assuming that’s not some sort of horrible April Fool’s joke, anyway.
Goat Simulator was originally a bit of alpha test footage put on YouTube, which was later turned into a real game due to the demands of the adoring public. It’s a title apparently inspired by skating games, in that you’re trying to score as high as you can… only instead of doing tricks on a skateboard, you’re smashing stuff with a goat. It’s hard to argue with that.
If you fancy smashing stuff as a goat (and who doesn’t?) then you’ll apparently be able to do so in less than a month. Hooray!
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
